Hank got back to me saying "Certainly, but stress the safety testing needed
for dishes."

John also got back saying that he already has my book. For those still
lacking a copy:

Bev's Cu2 - Cone 10 ox.:
60 Custer Feldspar
30 Barium Carb
5 Zinc Oxide
5 EPK (a fairly pure kaolin)
+4% Copper Carbonate

Better still, go to my website and learn how the grid method works. (You can
get a book there too.)

Better still yet.... Organize for me to do a 2 day workshop at your local
college, club, campus, or cottage verandah (I've done the lot!). I am
currently organizing tours in the US in the spring and fall of 2002.... and
in 2003 in US, UK, Europe through to Iceland (attending a wedding there in
September 2003!) Anyone seriously interested in organizing a workshop
should contact me off-list:
